I've been doing the Dead Freeways Ride off and on since about since its inception in 2006. It's been about three years since the last time I did one, and no better time than now to remind Portland folks of what kind of city we may have had if highway projects like the Mount Hood...

2018 in review: Bike Tours and Travels
Hello, friends! It's the end of the year, so it's the customary time to look back and review what had happened. Overall, 2018 was a decent year for me, with lots of fun adventures. I didn't get anywhere near as much bike camping or touring in as I would have liked, but to make up... Continue Reading →

Slough Country Ramble, 16 Feb 2018
As I said before, I don't know how long I'll be around the Woodlawn neighborhood, which means my easy access to the beloved Columbia Slough. So to bid adieu to this region, I'll be leading one of my favorite rides: The Slough Country Ramble! We'll be meeting on Saturday February 16 at 11 AM at... Continue Reading →
A post-solstice Slough Ramble: 22 Dec 2018
As I've said previously, I haven't done much riding lately. General busyness, not having to leave the house to go to work, and general winterness has brought my riding almost to zilch. Heck, I don't think I got on my bike for a good week before Friday the 21st. So, a ride of some sort... Continue Reading →
Palm Tree Ride, Sun 20 January
Yes! The Palm Tree Ride is back! I did it for ten years straight (2005-2015), then took a few years off. I brought it back last year as a one-off, with the idea I'd revive it if I felt the urge. Well, I can't say it's going to go on forever, but I definitely want... Continue Reading →
Postcard Club Sale ENDS Sunday 23 Dec
My Postcard Club is simple: I send about four (sometimes five and even six) unique event postcards throughout the year, each one with my drawerings on it! (See above) I like doing things "old-school" around here. Yes, email lists and "social medias" do the same trick. But they ain't as cool. A postcard? It's physical,... Continue Reading →
Society of Three Speeds Get-Together, Sat 19 Jan
Hello, friends of Three Speeds! 2019 looks to be an eventful year ’round the Society of Three Speeds. And to kick it off, how about a good ol’ Get-Together?
We’ll be meeting between 4 PM and 6: 30 PM on Saturday January 19th at Montavilla Brew Works, 7805 SE Stark St.
This event is FREE, but all beverages will be paid for by YOU. Montavilla Brew Works has no kitchen so no onsite food besides a few snacks. However, they allow outside food, and there are HEAPS of options within a couple blocks of the brewery. You will not go hungry!
After the gathering, if people are willing and the weather’s okay, we may go for a ride. So, it is best to bring your Three Speed bicycle to show off and use! (And it’ll be dark and maybe wet, bring lights and rain gear for that.)
Things that will happen…
